In Fog and Falling Snow

Synopsis:
Mid 1840s. York. The British nation sets a course to dominate the world, driven by the sweat of the people and the power of steam. Dragon-like, the hot engine forces steam through valves and pistons. The train races into the night, whilst snow falls thick and fast over the moors. The passengers are thrilled to experience speed for the first time in their lives. The driver strains to see into the thick night, and no one knows what horrors the future holds. As George Hudson sets forth on his journey to build the great East Coast rail network at any cost, the people who build it, along with investors and passengers are caught up in the reckless extravagance of his great adventure. The cost is high for all involved. As they place their bets on the future and the wheel of fortune rolls from the station towards the dark night, only the driver's daughter sees the danger ahead. Told by a cast of over 200, audiences will move through the National Railway Museum's collections and end up in a new purpose built theatre. Experience an amazing story brought vividly to life by the people of York.

Pygmalion

Synopsis:
Shaw's dramatisation of a Cockney flower girl's metamorphosis into a lady is not only a delightful fantasy but also has much to say about social class, money, spiritual freedom and womens' independence. Its combination of ideas and social comment, together with its rich comic characterization, make it one of the most enduring and entertaining of English comedies. Henry Higgins, Professor of Linguistics and confirmed bachelor, wagers that within six months he will transform flower seller, Eliza Doolittle, into a lady who can take her place in high society. Shaw's masterpiece is both brilliantly funny and a devastating critique of the English class system. This play formed the basis of "My Fair Lady".

Railway Children, The

Railway Children, The
Mike Kenny's imaginative stage adaptation of e. Nesbit's much-loved children's classic. Famously filmed, this story of a prosperous Edwardian family - mother and three children - forced into near-penury in the rural north of england captures the anxieties and exhilarations of childhood with great tenderness and insight. as Mike Kenny says of his remarkably faithful adaptation, 'you dont need a real train to perform this play. . . the most powerful prop is the imagination of the audience, the most effective tool the skill of the actors.' So this version of the Railway Children, which offers three plum roles for young performers, is eminently suitable for schools, youth theatres and Drama groups - anywhere, in fact, where the cry of 'Daddy! My Daddy!' is likely to provoke a tear. . .
